NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 19 (March 2-March 8)

The unpredictability of the NBA life is what makes it more exciting and to a certain degree, more frightening. As  a fan, I'll take the former any day, with smaller doses of the latter during lethargic stretches. Speaking of EXCITING and FRIGHTENING, you may have heard something about Russell Westbrook and Derrick Rose, that is, in any event you didn't purposely hide your computer and smartphones the past few days. The two All-Star point guards are heading in different directions right now at Read More

The Importance of Team Pace in Fantasy Basketball

I don't hate advanced stats as much as Charles Barkley, nor am I making it my mistress like Daryl Morey. I like to think that I'm a reasonable guy-- a balanced one if you will-- but if you dig fantasy basketball, you have to be more Morey than Barkley. If you think like Sir Chuck in fantasy, you might as well draft up until the third round and leave. On the other hand, if you're Morey, you find specialized value up until the last pick, which can potentially help you out in the long run. As Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice Feb. 25

The news on Derrick Rose going under the knife on the same knee he injured in 2013 was surely a big blow to the Chicago Bulls. The team's official release said an MRI scan revealed a torn meniscus and that no timetable was set in his return. Again. Rose's knee injury will open a lot of opportunities for a couple other Bulls. Joakim Noah, for instance, could see a lot more touches as a facilitator at the center spot. In the 2013-14 season playing without the 2011 MVP, Noah dished a ridiculous 5.4 Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice (Feb. 23)

February 23 features eight games for the ongoing 2015 NBA season and you know what that means for fantasy junkies: Wriggle room to play and play some more! Many daily fantasy basketball players favor DraftKings over any other DFS sites because of the ease of use and overall gameplay so this will be all references to the said site. Let us get this straight: This is only a daily fantasy basketball lineup advice column and we can only do so much for you. As you might already know, the KEY in winning Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 18 (Feb. 23- March 1)

If you're a Reggie Jackson owner (or the crafty one that immediately snagged him minutes after the trade deadline), what's not to love? If D.J. Augustin managed to come up with numbers good enough to be the seventh-best point guard in fantasy basketball as a starter for the Detroit Pistons, the Boston College product can possibly do a lot more. The best case scenario would be matching Augustin's numbers in the past 30 days: 18.1 points, 7.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and almost two treys in only under Read More

NBA Trade Deadline Fantasy Impact: Making Sense of the Dizzying Deadline Deals

It started slow and ended anything but. If anyone was asked to describe the 2015 NBA trade deadline in seven words, that would be the most fitting description. Thirty-eight players were involved, not to mention a slew of draft picks, and maybe a few broken smartphones from the incessant calls along the way. For some teams, if there ever were broken phones, it's all part of the occupational hazard. For others, not so much. And that could apply for players, too, and us as fantasy basketball loyalists.

2015 NBA Trade Deadline: Players Who Could Be On The Move

It's that time of the year again and the 2015 NBA trade deadline should provide us more news to delve into for the upcoming days. Because all the rosters will have locked after Thursday, all teams will have their own agendas and goals and should determine how they treat the deadline. For some, it'll be a chance to strengthen themselves going into the postseason by acquiring a veteran. The others use the NBA trade deadline as a pressure release, from the tax impunity, that is. OR it could be a good Read More

DFS Beginner’s Guide: Where to start?

This in-depth article will help educate beginners to the world of daily fantasy sports (DFS). It will show you the thought process of a professional DFS player, and the intricacies needed to build an effective NBA daily fantasy basketball lineup. With the all star breakup upon us, I am stepping back and analyzing my nightly process since I have the time to do so. I figured the best way for me to help is to walk you through how I do my own rosters, so that you can see the thought process, tweak Read More

How To Win Daily Fantasy Basketball H2H Leagues?

If you want to be a fantasy basketball rockstar, you have to pay your dues. Nobody can be naturally good at something so that means you have to work hard for it. Even if some are born smart, they still have to use that brain of theirs to be good at something. So what's the point? Because you do want to earn money easy (I presumed that's why you're here in the first place), you have to spend time on it. Once you've figured out the initial flurry, you'll be able to handle everything well. In Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 16-17 (Feb. 9-22)

If you own Blake Griffin, you're in trouble right now. His 22.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists will be sorely missed at this crucial time, especially with the Clips trying to hold down the 5th spot in a murderous Western Conference. Griffin underwent successful surgery for a staph infection on his right elbow but he is expected to be out for more than a month. The Clippers will likely be hanging on for dear life during that time and Griffin's missed time on the court is the very reason why. Read More
